Borussia M’gladbach hosts Mainz 05 at the Borussia-Park

Borussia M’gladbach hosts Mainz 05 at the Borussia-Park in a fixture from the 19th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s discuss it during our daily free football betting tips for the weekend.


Borussia M’gladbach are up for a good finish of one good season for them so far. They are currently third in the Bundesliga standings with 35 points and a possible return to the Champions League is looking like an absolutely realistic goal at the moment. Being just 5 points behind the leader RB Leipzig, we can say they are still in the title race as well.


Against Mainz Borussia M’gladbach will look for a redemption after their 0-2 defeat against Schalke 04 in the last round. The game at the Veltins Arena didn’t go very well for the visitors. They kept a clean sheet in the first half, but after the break the Royal Blues secured the win with goals from Serdar and Gregoritsch.


The manager Marco Rose is dealing with some problems before this game. Stefan Lainer is suspended for the next match, while Torben Musel, Nico Elvedi and Tony Jantschke are injured.


Mainz 05 are in a critical need of points at the moment, because they can find themselves in the relegation zone at any time now. At this moment Mainz are 15th in the league with 18 points, just three points ahead of the 17th Fortuna Dusseldorf and the relegation zone. Mainz’ biggest problem is their current shape – they lost four of their last five matches.


Last week Achim Beierlorzer’s team hosted Freiburg at the Opel Arena, but didn’t get any points from this game. Jean Mateta scored for the hosts, but at the end Freiburg scored one more.
